Jerrod Carmichael confessed his feelings for Tyler the Creator and the rapper’s response is shocking

Comedian Jerrod Carmichael is putting everything on the table for all to see in his new reality TV series. However, this interaction between him and rapper Tyler the Creator is making the internet cringe.

Carmichael, who claim to fame comes from stand up comedy shows, like Max’s Rothaniel, and sitcoms, like The Carmichael Show, is now giving reality TV a go, with an open, honest look into the comedian’s life on the Jerrod Carmichael Reality Show. From coming out as a gay with a public profile, to discussing his sexuality (and bears, twunks, and otters) with devoutly Christian family, to his dating life, no stone is left unturned in the 36-year-old’s new show.

“Yes, I bring in cameras, and yes that’s my way, and yes I’m afraid to have these conversations without them,” Carmichael says in the trailer. “Let’s just blow this sh*t wide open.”

Well, he did just that when the first episode highlighted his conversation with Tyler the Creator in which Carmichael recalls confessing his feelings for the rapper. The two men have been BFFs for a while, with Carmichael narrating Tyler’s Igor album and the duo held a special conversation to promote Tyler’s Flower Boy album. But Carmichael developed feelings for Tyler and admitted them in a text in 2021 and the comedian tried again when he asked Tyler to be his date to the Emmy Awards.

Let’s just say neither conversation went as planned.

Tyler denied Carmichael’s invitation to be his date to the Emmy Awards, but his response to Carmichael’s text is pretty much cringey. The rapper responded to Carmichael’s text with a voice note where Tyler called him a “stupid b*tch.” Probably the last thing you want to be told when you admit your feelings for your crush.

The two men hash out the previous exchanges on camera, where Tyler admitted that it was “a lot to download” and that he didn’t know how to respond to Carmichael’s confession.

“Getting news like that and then avoiding it is a way to avoid change,” Tyler said. “I didn’t think brushing that off and continuing regularly would be such a dent. I don’t know.”

Tyler also admitted that he saw Carmichael as a “brother,” something he reiterated multiple times to the comedian. Carmichael even responds to Tyler, telling him “you can feel yourself not answering” the questions posed. To make matters even more awkward, Tyler ordered, ate, and digested food throughout the discussion, as he goes to the bathroom, mid-conversation, to fart.

The moment hit new levels of cringe in reality TV. While the two men remain close friends, the internet had a lot to say about the interaction and the show. Many couldn’t get past how the interaction made them feel.

Others pointed out how Tyler’s reaction made sense, giving his Jackass-esque antics and behavior, but that it wasn’t cool.

A few more X users were quick to call out how the interaction points to another conversation on high-profile Black gay men and their dating habits. Tyler confirmed in a 2017 interview that he only dated white men and didn’t like “Black dudes at all.”

In all, this tweet might sum up the internet’s thoughts on the Jerrod Carmichael Reality Show.

The eight-part Jerrod Carmichael Reality Show is streaming now on Max.
